Warm and inviting interior with thirteen opening ports w/screens and eight hatches with OceanAir screens & shades provide abundant light and air flow. You'll admire the beautiful furniture quality satin gloss varnish applied to the select teak hardwood veneers on the bulkheads and all cabinetry. As you descend the companionway ladder, you will see the open salon with full length settees on both sides covered in beautiful UltraLeather upholstery. The starboard settee extends toward the centerline to make a comfortable double berth and both settees can double as seaberths. Two large upholstered hassocks are optional. A cedar-lined hanging locker with extra height rods is outboard with a shelf above. The dining table is Island Packet's signature fold-up bulkhead-mounted table. When deployed it will accommodate a large group and then conveniently stores away when not in use.

There is a very nice forward-facing navigation center with seating for two, large varnished chart table, storage tray, generous nav/electronics panel with master AC/DC electrical panels. The comfortable wide bench seat has removable panels beneath revealing the dedicated generator compartment.

The forward owner's stateroom spans the beam of the yacht and includes a generous offset island berth with access on both sides so you don't have to disturb your partner when getting out of bed. The berth is hinged and can be raised on gas support struts to reveal ample storage. There is a large cedar-lined hanging locker and teak bureau. A nice dressing seat to port adds a final touch. A luxurious private head is located adjacent to the stateroom and features a large stall shower with folding acrylic doors, VacuFlush toilet, vanity with corian counter top and molded sink. Mirrored storage cabinets and large drawers finish this impressive head.

The aft guest stateroom also features a large offset double island berth, a roomy cedar-lined hanging locker with extra height rods outboard, and an array of cabinets, bins, and shelves. As in the owner's stateroom, the berth top hinges on gas struts to reveal lots of storage beneath.

The aft head is just as nice as the forward with the same corian counter tops, separate shower stall with seat and folding acrylic doors, and VacuFlush toilet. A door is conveniently located near the companionway in the main salon plus an additional door for private access from the aft stateroom.

The roomy cockpit is safe and comfortable with a very nice bimini and dodger. The large swim platform features twin molded-in steps to port and starboard, a hot/cold shower and a fold-out swim ladder.

  • Peek A Boo Shades on all ports
  • Fully air conditioned and (8) Hella ventilation fans
  • Custom Carpeting on a non-skid pad for forward cabin, salon, and aft cabin

Broker Comments

This boat has been very well maintained and is "turn key". There's no waiting for equipment to be added or working out the bugs...just load her with your personal gear and you are ready to go cruising. Don't miss your opportunity. This model is truly a beautiful sailing machine and includes some very nice recent upgrades. This is a 2006 model but it was not commissioned until 2007. This boat represents one of the best values in the size and price range on the market today. Wind Whisperer's owners continue to use the boat and keep her systems exercised and maintained. She received Bottom Paint, New Inverter, and New AIS in 2016 and New Water Heater in 2017. As of Feb. 2017, she is on Florida's East Coast. Contact us anytime for her current location and to arrange a showing.
